First step is to expand the expression (2X + Y)(2Z + W) via FOIL:
2X*2Z + 2X*W + Y*2Z + Y*W
4XZ + 2XW + 2YZ + YW
Rearranging the terms we get:
(4XZ + YW) + 2(XW + YZ)
(4XZ + YW) + 2(XW + YZ)

All we need to do now is substitute the values 4XZ + YW = 3 and XW + YZ = 6
(4XZ + YW) + 2(XW + YZ)
3 + 2*6
= 15

Answer C
